Finding Archimedes in the Bathtub
  • Heros Challenge
  • Archimedes Training
  • Triggering Event

7
The past 10 years have seen amazing search
capabilitiesWe can now search.
  • Digital vs. paper files
  • Search engines
  • Documents
  • Web pages

8
But not.
  • Memories
  • Undocumented knowledge
  • Inventions ABOUT to be made

9
Variants on Archimedes Tub
  • Set challenge and training and await trigger
  • Add challenge to mix of training and triggers
  • Prior undisclosed solutions
  • Parallel yet unsearchable work

10
Organizing for Serendipity
  • Broadcast challenges
  • Lightweight contracts
  • Problem specific intellectual property agreements
  • Build intellectual not physical attractors
  • Minimize core with reconfigurable problem-solver
    population
